    Question.... have you checked the manufacturers web sites??
    http://www.rheemac.com/
    http://www.lennox.com/

    Yes Lennox is a lot more expensive than Rheem, Yes *most* all Lennox parts
    are propriatary and come with a price tag that is 3 times that of Rheem. Yes
    you will probably have to wait for a week to 10 days for Lennox parts to be
    delivered while freezing/roasting your ass off during the coldest/hottest
    time of the year.
    Now......as far as the noise, Rheem is one of the quietest around.

    Personally I would get the Town Car (Rheem) instead of the Rolls
    Royce(Lennox).
